|Honest honorable men fighting a severe injustice against their own supposed representative government’s love affair for the benefit of a foreign country, its disloyal Israel First supporters and campaign contributions they receive from themselves. It’s enough to make you vomit. Remember the USS Liberty. Israel is not worth it. -jd

|Thanks to Ernie Gallo for forwarding the “new” and
claimed-to-be-complete list of NSA links to Liberty information
Sadly, NSA still ignores and claims not to have or to be aware of any
|Why is it that the risk of “embarrassing an ally” takes priority
above the death of 34 men, the loss of a United States Ship, multiple
documented war crimes and the violation of international law and US law?
|The earliest such report, though not the first to reach us, came from
US Air Force Captain Richard Block who, as duty watch captain with
the USAF 6931st Security Squadron on the Greek island of Crete in the
Mediterranean Sea, about 350 miles from the Gaza Strip. Captain
Block’s presence of mind was fortuitous. Recognizing the intercepted
instant-translations between Israeli pilots and their controllers as
important, he took immediate action to forward the translations not
only to national authorities in Washington at the highest precedence
for intelligence material (CRITIC), also to Air Force All Source
Intelligence Centers around the world. People who saw these
translations were stunned by what they read, yet they were sworn to
secrecy by the most stringent security restrictions and for the most
part, while horrified, kept the story and their feelings to
themselves for many years. Years later, these people started to come
forward, as recounted below.
|One such analyst was Air Force Captain Stephen Forslund on duty as a
US Air Force intelligence analyst at the 544th Air Reconnaissance
Technical Wng, Offut Air Force Base, Omaha, Nebraska. Forslund
eventually retired from the Air Force after 26 years of service, and
told us the story after reading Assault on the Liberty.
|A statement by former Air Force analyst James Ronald Gotcher, who saw
the same intercepts as a US Air Force Intelligence Analyst with the
6924th Security Squadron, Da Nang, Republic of Vietnam.
|Statement by Army Colonel Patrick Lang who saw the intercepted
material at an advanced cryptology course at Fort Holabird, Maryland,
a few months after the attack.
|Ambassador Dwight Porter describes seeing the intercepted materials
described by Gotcher, Forslund, Block, Lang and others.
|Just as Lyndon John [sic] declined to “embarrass an ally” by allowing US
jets to defend USS Liberty, so the US government ever since as
declined to “embarrass an ally” by releasing the full story of the
attack on our shi
